Berlin, Germany, June 14, 2022 - PRISMATIKA and Spiritus Games are today thrilled to announce that a brand new demo for upcoming action-roguelike Fabular: Once Upon a Spacetime is now available as part of Steam Next Fest. The demo offers lightyears of epic intergalactic action - giving players the ability to explore the first and second realm, and get to grips with a brand new agile spaceship: The Manticore.
To coincide with the launch of the demo, PRISMATIKA has unveiled a stunning new explanation trailer that showcases the thrilling melee gameplay and systems players will experience while exploring Fabular’s unique sci-fi infused vision of the Middle Ages.
New ship, The Manticore is a cunning blade-hunter, offering high mobility and crit damage at the expense of a more fragile hull. Players can choose to equip duelling daggers that have the highest attack speed and critical damage in the game, or glaives that are slower but have increased melee range. Its special ability is Holo-decoy - a short range dash move which when executed perfectly leaves behind a holographic decoy.
As part of the demo, Fabular’s combat system has also been completely overhauled to make the enemy's combat behaviour more realistic while a host of new items, events and quality of life updates have been added to the game too.
Fabular: Once Upon a Spacetime sees players take to the stars as the cross blades with space knights in an epic roguelike, as they battle, loot and upgrade their way across the galaxy, defeating rival ships in gripping melee combat on a quest to save a kingdom from destruction.
This vast action-roguelike sees the futuristic and the medieval collide in a procedurally generated universe, brought to life through a combination of epic pixel art and hand-drawn illustrations. It will launch in Early Access later this year.
